The police have identified the remnants of the alleged regional terror group
Jemaah Islamiyah whose suspected Malaysian member was gunned down in Davao City,
southern Philippines two weeks ago.
Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar said the police
were gathering evidence before making the arrests.
"We are giving top priority in suppressing terrorism activities. The suspects
involved in militancy are already on our radar," he told reporters here
Thursday. Mohd Noor Fikrie Abd Kahar, 26, from Kedah was killed by the Philippine
police at a hotel in Davao City Dec 14 after he threatened to blow up an
explosive device in a rucksack.
In another incident, Khalid warned the public not to get involved in
smuggling and drug trafficking locally or abroad for every country is armed with
legal provisions for each offence.
